On a panel at the Museum of Television and Radio William S. Paley Festival this weekend, “Heroes” creator Tim Kring told the audience present that he knows the fate of every one of the Heroes and has their destiny for the end of Season One all mapped out.
Although he is putting the finishing touches to the script for the season one finale, Kring stated “I know everyone’s fate.”
What we can tell you is Mr. Linderman, revealed last week in the guise of actor Malcom McDowell, is also a gifted hero and the man behind New York’s demise, but, unlike Sylar, his wanton destruction is done with pure intentions.
Kring also revealed that Nathan Petrelli may end up in the Oval Office of the White House, if Linderman’s predictions turn out to be correct.
This show breaks the mold of every one that has come before it because no character on the program, no matter how pivotal, loved, hated or admired, is safe from elimination. What makes it even more amazing is that the audience knows this, but the writers are so good and the actors so believable in the roles, that fans don’t mind investing their time and emotions into them, knowing full well they could be gone in the next episode. That is real-life programming and SF at its best.
